As I often do with something new, I wore it for a few days to make sure it stays on and together, is comfortable, etc. and can report that it's fine except that I made the mistake of wearing it with a loosely embroidered Mexican blouse and it kept catching the threads. It was fine with everything else, though I'd be careful with something like a bulky knit sweater. Oh, and it's a little tricky to fasten with one hand.
Aside from that, it is fun and very comfortable to wear and got LOTS of compliments.
So here it is--a nice piece of belt leather, well aged but still stiff enough to hold its shape, with vintage pewter hand-shaped buttons, old watchworks, a vintage butterfly-shaped copper locket, vintage lacy filigree circle with a vintage black resin rose cabochon, vintage sun with sunglasses repurposed from an earring, silvertone, copper, and brass wirework, and a big decorative link and equally decorative toggle in Tibetan silver.
I'm actually iffy about listing this one--I like it a lot and it gets more compliments than any of the others --but I hope someone else can enjoy it and know that I'll make another when it's gone. Art is a funny business!
This piece should be fine under normal wearing conditions. I would, however, keep it outside car shoulder belts and away from animals and small children.
